June 2010 NPDs -- Red Dead Redemption still riding high

Red Dead Redemption tops video game sales for second month in row

The NPD Group has their monthly video game sales report for the month of June 2010 up and it's about what you'd expect -- Red Dead Redemption holds the top spot with a slew of Nintendo titles not far behind. Turned out to be a tough month for hardware sales, but what do you expect with Move and Kinect on the horizon and not much hardware coming out in the meantime?

Here's the top 10:

Red Dead Redemption (Xbox 360)

Super Mario Galaxy 2

Red Dead Redemption (PS3)

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Just Dance

Wii Fit Plus (with Balance Board)

Toy Story 3 (Nintendo DS)

UFC 2010: Undisputed (Xbox 360)

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 (Wii)

UFC 2010: Undisputed (PS3)

Note that Super Mario Galaxy jumped from third place to second despite selling less than it did in May (down to 548,900 from 563,000).

Here's what happened hardware-wise:

Nintendo DS -- 510.7K

Xbox 360 -- 451.7K

Wii -- 422.5K

PlayStation 3 -- 304.8K

PSP -- 121K

Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg hopped on Twitter earlier about the 360's success:

Look out hare, here comes the tortoise...post E3 bump & new console drives Xbox 360 sales up 88% as top selling console in June

And that's all the NPD for this month. See you again in August for July's numbers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
